A Columbia woman who aided a boyfriend in the 2016 stabbing death of her husband has pleaded guilty to felony charges that she provided false information to law enforcement officers.

Allison E. Oberdorff, 26, entered the non-negotiated plea Friday at Lancaster County Courthouse, court records show.

She will be sentenced on the third-degree felony charge at a later date, following a pre-sentencing investigation. A third-degree felony carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Oberdorff's husband, Michael Oberdorff Sr., 44, was killed by Ronald L. Sheetz, 42, at the Oberdorff's 322 S. Second St. home on Jan. 15, 2016.

Police say Allison Oberdorff deleted text messages and misled police on how Sheetz gained access to the home.

She initially told police that she did not have a number for Sheetz. However, police later found his number in the her phone under the name “Tiff.” Numerous text messages had also been deleted, police said.

Sheetz pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in December and was sentenced to 7½ to 15 years in prison for the stabbing death.
